Island Park Walk located just steps from Granville market.

Granville Island

Granville Island is a small island and shopping district in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. It is located in False Creek directly across from Downtown Vancouver's peninsula, under the south end of the Granville Street Bridge. The island is now more or less connected with the mainland so it is not technically an island.

Granville Island was once an industrial manufacturing area, but is now a major tourist destination, providing amenities such as a public market, a large marina, a hotel, the Emily Carr University of Art and Design (named in honour of the artist), various theatres including the Arts Club Theatre Company and Carousel Theatre, and various shopping areas clustered around the one industrial outpost remaining, a cement plant. The island is very popular with tourists and locals alike.

Passenger ferry service from Granville Island to Downtown Vancouver is provided by two ferry companies, False Creek Ferries and Aquabus.

Since its redevelopment in the 1970s, Granville Island has maintained a healthy community of craft studios, including a glassblowing studio, a printmaking shop, a luthier, a master shoemaker, various jewellers, and the B.C. Potter's Guild. A weekly farmer's market has also been ongoing since the island's redevelopment.

Granville Island Brewing Co. is also the name of a beer company which originated on Granville Island in 1984, but whose main base of operations was moved to Kelowna, British Columbia some time later. It does continue, however, to brew some of its varieties at the original site, and offers beer-tasting tours.

In 2004, Project for Public Spaces named Granville Island "One of the World's Great Places".

Hello Danos,

Great shot of Vancouver which you can see between the two blossoming trees. Great natural framing, well seen! Great POV with great light, beautiful colours and wonderful details! Excellent work!


PS: I hope you had a nice stay in Canada...I love your photos!

Bonjour Danos
Une belle image printanière avec les arbres fleuris qui encadrent la pièce d'eau d'un bleu profond. Les couleurs sont jolies et l'ensemble agréable à regarder.
Je te souhaite un bon dimanche.

Hi Danos,
Nice composition and very good point of view. Excellent light and sharpness.

Γεια σου Δάνο,
Πραγματικά πρέπει να είναι υπέροχο μέρος αυτό, ιδανικό για ξεκούραση. Πολύ όμορφα το παρουσιάζεις με πανέμορφα χρώματα και πολύ καλό βάθος πεδίου.
Καλή σου μέρα, Βασίλης.

Hi Danos,
Excellent view between the flowering trees towards the skyline.
The light andcolors are magnificent.
Regards, Gerrit

Lovely colourful blossoms for this postcard view of Vancouver.
the strong point of the compositon is its fine sense of open space and depth and its intense colours. the two trees are so beautiful that could compose a good photo even without the city. A very good work,

Hello Danos,

An excellent view of this city. Excellent framing with the two coloured trees in the FG, the two trees give a nice depht to the image and a great prospect to the city in the BG. Beautiful contrast too.
Have a nice sunday,

Hi Danos,

The two trees in flowers in the foreground are framing well the area. The reflections in the water are assets to the composition. The point of view leads our eyes toward the highrise buildings in the background which is giving depth to the photo. The nice blue sky is sending a light which is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.


Hello Danos!
Excellent pov and superb composition for a very attractive and truly beautiful picture!
The highlight: those blossoming trees in the fg!
TFS - congratulations!

Hello Danos,
A mighty fine photo from Canada. Vancouver is beautifully seen and flanked by blossoming cherry trees, the shadows are enticing. My best regards...Danilo

Beautiful shot using the flowering trees to frame the city view. The lighting and colors are great with excellent sharpness and DOF. The deep blue sky provides contrast for the flowering trees.

Hi, Danos.
Absolutely lovely! Although I've never been to Vancouver, I had friends living there and they kept telling me what a good place to live at it is. Great perspective and wonderful colors set the pace in this one, and the pace is a very relaxed one. I like it, TFS! Welcome back home, my friend. Have a nice evening, I'll be seeing you.

Hi, Danos. I like the contrast in your picture between the two blossoming cherry trees with their nice pink flowers and the dark cluster of skyscrapers in the background. Moreover, the trees offer a perfect frame for the view on the city and give depth to the picture. The curving lines on the right point elegantly to the city in the background. Good contrasts and colours.
Have a nice evening, kalinikta,

Kalispera Danos,
I love Granville Island, even without seeing it captured at its peak, as you have done here. The blossoming spring trees frame that downtown skyline perfectly. You really have to find a place to spend time to truly enjoy Vancouver - a drive-by just doesn't get it. I'm sure you also had a wonderful visit with your son.

Une belle profondeur de scène et un polarisant qui a donné à fond.

Hello Danos,

The fruit blossom serves well to frame the view to the city skyline in the background!
Wonderful colours as the flowers stand out so well on the intense blue sky...
Well composed with good details and a fine sense of depth!

Hi Danos
Superb composition and framing.
Excellent view of this city.Well done.

Bonjour Dano.
Ces couleurs sont presque celles de la Grèce. Tu as parfaitement composé cette photo avec le lac et la ville encadrés par deux arbres en fleurs d'une grande beauté. On vante souvent l'automne canadien mais je vois que le printemps n'y est pas mal non plus.

Hello Danos,
Beautiful spring time Canada with the skyline of Vancouver as you backdrop against this beuatiful blossom. Beaustiful day, the contrast is very strong, too strong for my taste, I like it a bit softer and smoother. The rest of the image is great as always.

The beauty of the flowers in these blossom trees in foreground fills the image and attracts our look, but the depth of the image, the city in background, such a blue water and the sky, they are elements that complete a perfect composition.
It is a beautiful photo, in an elegant composition.

Bonjour Danos
la promenade dans ce parc doit être agréable avec le vue de ces arbres en fleurs, les ombres sur le sol, et l'aperçu de la ville en arrière plan qui nous y emmène de par l'arrondi de ce bassin (dommage pour la grue mais quelquefois on ne peut éviter)
excellente réalisation

Εξαιρετικό το καντράρισμα της πόλις ανάμεσα από τα δύο δέντρα, δημιούργησε μια πολύ όμορφη αντίθεση ανάμεσα της φύσης και του σύγχρονου πολιτισμού που άνθρωπος δημιούργησε, ενώ ταυτόχρονα δίνει βάθος στο θέμα σου.

Γειά σου Danos,

A wonderful urban Spring view! The skyscrapers are very nicely framed with the blossoming trees and the lake also contributes to make the image very appealing.

PS: Regrettably, it seems that I'll be in Athens during your holidays. It wasn't easy to harmonize schedules of everybody, so I "had to agree" with the dates of 26 and 27 of July. I'll arrive in the night of 25 and leave for Crete the 28th. Maybe next time (mine in Greece or yours in Portugal)...


Hi Danos,
a great picture with excellent sharpness and depth.
Vivid trees colour.
A very fine work

Geia Sou Danos,
a nice composition with ideal POV. The trees looks colourful in FG. It is a nice combination with trees, water and modern building, great contrast. Tfs.

Hi Danos,
amazing view, the trees full of flowers are so pretty and serve as a fantastic framing for the skyscrapers in the distance. Very good composition,

Καλησπέρα, φύγει εξακολουθεί να είναι μια όμορφη μέρα.
Πολύ ενδιαφέρουσα δέντρα, κατέληξε στο βάθος της καταγραφής και το εξαιρετικό κείμενο του πολλές όμορφες φωτογραφίες. Συγχαρητήρια, εξαιρετική δουλειά.
Ένα ευχάριστο βράδυ, το σαββατοκύριακο σας φέρει χαρά, ό, τι καλύτερο, θέλετε Paja.

Picture me, however, is associated with Japan, perhaps by the blooming cherry trees. A nice walk in the flowers. Excellent, vivid colors and very good sharpness.

Δάνο καλήμέρα,
φανταστικές οι κουτσουπιές καθώς προβάλουν στο μπέ του ουρανού και στη μέση έχεις τοποθετήσει τους ουρανοξύστες.Το λαμπρό φως σε συνδιασμό με τη καθαρότητα της φωτογραφίας πραγματικά αναδυκνύουν το μέρος αυτό του Granville Island.

Hello Danos,

You're capturing well this scape from island by a good composition and excellent color balace, so it's impressive to see beautiful landscape with front double trees with pink flower and downdown with high buildings far away. And, curved promenade with the shadow around the bay draws out a good effect, too.


Καλησπέρα Δάνο,
Ακόμα δεν κατάλαβα πως λέγονται τα δέντρα. Αλλά τα έχεις συνδυάσει τέλεια στην σύνθεση σου δίνοντας ένα φυσικό πλαίσιο ανάμεσα στα ανθισμένα δέντρα και να απλώνεται στο βάθος η πόλη του Βανκούβερ. Πολύ καλή τεχνική.
Καλό αβράδυ,

Judas trees are very famous in Canada because of the beautiful pink flowers they give
Good depth the viewers can see Vancouver buildings in the background and the lake
Clear shot with a good contrast
Bonne soiree

Hi Danos !!
I hope that you are well.
This is a well composes photo using the two blossom trees to frame the view of the city buildings in the background.the shadows of the trees create nice decorative shaves on the ground.
Very neat and lovely colours.
Have a nice week end

Hi Danos,
